Start to Finish

This is what I start with, and this is what they are when finished. 
This set was purchased by a Mom who I thought was giving them to her friends. Turns out she is giving through the year to her daughters friends for Birthdays, cute idea isn't it? They read Friends Forever with a heart charm.

Another favorite...

Middleton babies, you can get them at Bears, Buddies and Toys. They have a nursery, you pick out which baby you'd like, there are many, and you adopt them. They measure them, weigh them and ask you many questions. After you have completed the process, you have officially adopted them. Its so fun. My girls truly love them. They each had a baby, Isabella a boy, Josh and Sophia a girl, Zoe. For Christmas they wanted them to have a sibling. Isabella wishing for a girl and Sophia wishing for a boy. They each got them. they have buggies, swings and beds. Its so fun to watch them. As I am typing this, the top picture is what I look at in the front room. 

Christmas Pictures

What a wonderful Christmas we had. Family, friends, good weather for travel, it was really nice. Here are a few shots of our Christmas. The big hits in the house were the Lite Brite, they loved/love it. And these sparkle outfits. They got them Christmas morning and didn't take them off all day. I had outfits for them, they went right out the window when they saw these. There was no way I could change them. 
I hope you had a wonderful Holiday xo

She may have a little of her mama's rhythm en ha. 
Boy did we have some fun last night. My hubby found Pandora Internet Station on our iphones. Its endless radio and you can pick different stations, different styles, and it will play until you change it. Its so fun. So, last night we typed in, Janet Jackson, oh how I loved her. And we danced and danced and danced. We got a pretty good work out actually. 
Now we are listen'n to Blues Christmas. 
Try it out, you'll love it!

1 White & 1 Green

This is one of my favorite times of year in our home. Everything is decorated, everywhere you go. Its fun. We have 2 trees again this year. One traditional green tree that is decorated with fun treats, sparkles, glass ornaments and more. The girls and Daddy decorated it. Its so wonderful light up at night. 
Then we have a white tree in the kitchen/eating area. I bought it at a thrift store last year. It is up all year. The decorations change with the seasons. Last night my hubby and I went to an Ugly Christmas Sweater party and came home to it decorated in the sweetest treats. In all my favorite colors. OH HOW I LOVE IT. Thanks Mom, your the best! And Aunt Geri for the felt treats! I just want to stare at them, they are so yummy looking. 
More to come, stay tuned. 
Happy Holidays.

isabella has a unique relationship with animals, she always has. she loves them, she takes care of them, she spends time with them. this is one of our cats, rocket. every morning, and i mean every morning, he is at her gate, waiting for her to wake up. and he'll wait until she gets up. on the weekends, she'll open her gate and let him in. he will be curled up on her bed with her. its really cute. 
both kids have a gate on their bedroom door. they, the girls, think if the cats jumped up on their bed in the middle of the night it would scare them. so we made gates for them.

quite, shy

ya, just when i think she is pretty shy and quite. preschool tells me that she is a crack up and that she is super loud, one of the loudest out of all the kids. really? that surprises me. but then i see her look at the camera like this and i think...hmmmm, maybe she's not so quite.

oh my gosh, we went to disneyland friday night and it was SUPER. we went on more rides then we have EVER gone on. the girls are high enough to go on almost everything. i think the best was all of us going on soaring california. it was so wonderful to see their facing looking at that screen. i am pretty sure i never took my eyes off them thee entire ride. poor little sophia cried as we left. she said the fireworks were to loud. i agree, the ride is pretty soothing, other then the golf ball, the really loud jets, and the fireworks. all in all we had a great night! and it wasn't even crowded.

what do you think?

what a great day

four days off, it was wonderful. and our first day back to school was great. we had our daisy meeting (23 girls) and we had so much fun. 1/2 of the girls stayed outside to sing and dance. remaining girls came inside with me to do our craft. we thought of the things we were thankful for, one word things. and then we wrote them on our rocks. it was so fun. and the finished project was even better. 
after our daisy meeting we headed over to paint a tile for our school wall. it was so fun to see the girls be creative and know what they wanted to paint. i sat a little uneasy knowing that if isabella made a mistake it couldn't be fixed. but she did a great job. i can't wait to see the tile when its baked and finished. 
halllie and isabella are so sweet.
